Pollution can be a contributor to a number of known health problems, and while you may be exposed when outdoors to poor air quality, HVAC experts recommend creating a safer environment inside your home. Your cooling and heating system has much to do with how healthy the air inside your home is, but even the highest- quality units sometimes need help from an air purifier.
If you’re still on the fence about whether you should splurge for extra-efficient HEPA filters or a snazzy new air purifier, you might want to learn just how much clean air can affect your home and quality of life. Here are the benefits of good indoor air quality (IAQ) as explained by our HVAC experts at Cooper Bros.
A Breath of Clean Air
It’s easy to chalk up poor IAQ to needing an air conditioner replacement; however, this doesn’t fully address the root cause of the problem. Studies have linked even minute amounts of indoor pollution to increased levels of stress and breathing irritation. Cleaner air means healthier breathing, and it can even mitigate the effects and symptoms of certain respiratory conditions, including asthma and allergies.
A Good Night’s Sleep
Clean air has also been found to improve quality of sleep. When you’re breathing easily, you’re more likely to have restful sleep at night. Bad odors, which can disturb you even while unconscious, are also eliminated. High IAQ levels can also promote better relaxation.
A More Efficient Home
Improving your IAQ can sometimes be just as good as a timely air conditioner repair at saving you money on your energy bills. Particulate matter and other pollutants tend to obstruct ducts and vents, hindering the airflow inside your house. This causes your HVAC system to work harder and consume more energy just to maintain the same level of comfort.
